A few days after confirming that Joss Whedon was wrapping up production for Marvel's The Avengers in Cleveland, The Plain Dealer reports it's officially a done deal and that they're moving on to New York. But not without one last dose of some spoiler information. Check out what the magazine had to say about its final production moments if you don't mind spoilers.

The scenes being shot inside the 99-year-old courthouse are the interior version of the scenes that tie into what was shot last week on Public Square where hundreds of extras ran in terror from Tower City.

The scene is a ball with many people in formal wear, he said. There is an altar that looks Egyptian where a fight between (evil Norse god Loki) and one of the heroes will occur. The film will be shot until 5 a.m. Tuesday when the crew will pack up and drive to New York City for a quick shooting of a few scenes.

Scarlett Johansson filmed scenes at an old warehouse on Ashland Road near Longfellow Avenue, off Cedar Road near the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks Friday and Saturday. This afternoon another scene of destruction was filmed on Walnut Avenue at East Ninth Street. A bus and a taxi were crushed by a huge chunk of building outside a fictitious Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Marvel's The Avengers will star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson. Whedon is leading the direction from a screenplay he penned.

The film hits theaters May 4, 2012.
